Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, understandably shelters have been limiting their hours, changing intake policies, etc. On March 31st Hillside SPCA in Pottsville , PA put out an urgent plea for help:
“We’re the only shelter currently open, so we’re getting all the calls for the cruelty cases. We’re getting all of the drop-offs for the strays. Our numbers are rising; our donations are down. We are getting back-ordered on litter and wet food. We’re in a crisis right now with everything hitting at once,” said Donna Boyd, a member of Hillside SPCA’s board of directors.
We reached out with a donation of $250 to their general fund. You can find out more about them at hillsidespca.com.
